Our guide, Jorge, was excellent. He never rushed his guests or left anyone behind. Please wear comfortable shoes! You will walk a lot and the cobblestone streets are not forgiving. Jorge’s knowledge and humor during the tour made it a great experience. It is a walking tour through the World Heritage Site that is Toledo. Over 1,500 years of history as it changed hands from one conquering group to another with each one leaving its impression on the city. Absolutely fascinating and a completely enjoyable day!

Excelente experiencia. El viaje en autobus fue muy cómodo y el grupo era pequeño así que habia espacio suficiente para mantener distancia por el tema de Covid-19. Nuestra guía, Rocío, fue muy clara, amable y jocosa, se expresaba muy bien en español e inglés y, además de proveernos la información histórica, contestó nuestras preguntas y nos proveyó recomendaciones de comidas, locales, etc.

Good trip. Both the medieval towns are awesome and definitely worth a visit. Carlos was a great guide with a good sense of humor. He kept giving relevant information all along the way.

To have an excellent experience you should ask for Beni as your tour guide :) He was the best tour guide ever. He was very knowledgeable and super kind.

We really enjoyed our guided tour. Thank you Bruno for such a great experience. Definitely recommend it if your in Madrid.
